As we head into the month when we celebrate the bounty in our
lives, remember that gratitude comes in many forms. While these
two businesses are grateful for our supportive community, they in
turn offer us reasons to feel gratitude.
Mark B. Williams & Associates recently began
its 30th year serving Fauquier County. Initially
launching his business as a criminal defense fi rm
in 1990, Mark notes that it has evolved over time,
including the addition of outstanding attorneys who
specialize in family law and civil litigation. Not only
does this foursome have decades of experience,
they're genuinely compassionate and upfront with their clients,
ensuring they remain well-informed throughout the legal process.
The fi rm has helped countless individuals over the years, and they
are grateful to have earned the trust of so many people in the
area. To that end, it's important to the entire team to give back to
the community that continues to sustain them. The fi rm is actively
involved in the Fauquier Chamber of Commerce and delights in
regularly supporting several nonprofi ts, including the Boys & Girls
Club of Fauquier and the Fauquier Department of Social Services,
among others. To learn more, call
Pastry chef extraordinaire Lora Gookin opened
Gâteau Bakery Café, and Tea Room, two
years ago this month, and quickly engaged a
loyal following of diners who love that everything
prepared here is made from scratch, using only the
highest-quality organic ingredients. Although tasty
baked goods (including gorgeous custom and non-
custom cakes) and café items are available for takeout to anyone
who walks into the bakery, the quaint dining room has just 23
seats--so please call ahead to reserve spots for tea or other dine-
in meals--such as the Spanish Tapas dinner on November 10.
In addition, Gâteau has been involved in local events since it
opened. Stop by the bakery on November 2 during the 2nd Annual
Old Town Warrenton Cookie Crawl; Lora is preparing oatmeal
peanut butter cookies to tempt visitors! She is also excited to host
the 2nd Annual Gingerbread Competition on November 23 & 24.
